the cure live from reading festival

For the first time in 33 years, The Cure appeared at the legendary Reading Festival. And opposed to the scratchy cassette recording of that 1979 show, this one was broadcast in glorious HD on BBC3 and streamed online for the UK audience.

If you were clever enough to work around regional restrictions, you got to see Robert Smith, Simon Gallup, Roger O’Donnell, Jason Cooper and Reeves Gabrels in top form ripping through a greatest hits set. Fortunately, youtube user broonsauce is all over uploading highlights. Check out the full set list here, crank the volume and enjoy:
